Happy New Year everyone
I am starting a fresh today! as planned to stop drinking taking it day by day. I drink mostly to ease my anxiety but I am fully aware that my drink is causing most of it !
The question I have now is about my diet. I am a very healthy eater . My diet is always well balanced with fresh fruit, veg, fish , meats etc. I do not eat processed foods and mostly drink herbal teas always decaf ! I tend to stay away from carbs but not completely and my sugar intake is very low.
I have been advised to keep my sugar levels right down to help my anxiety ? but have also been advised if I stop drinking to eat more sugarey foods as lack of sugar will increase my anxiety and make my energy levels low.
I always suffer extreme tiredness when I give up drinking and this goes on for months ! All I want is to be fit and heathy
I have been suffering from night sweats during the last few weeks which could be hormonal as I am coming up for the menopause age but to me this is a sign that I must help myself once and for all as I really want a better future and a healthier one.
I dont drink in the day except the odd one occasionally. I normally start at 5pm and carry on . One to one and a half bottles a night normally. This has been everyday for nearly 20 years and it's a real hard struggle to go without!! I am determined now though
Sorry to go on ! I feel like a record going round and round when I come on here
Thanks for reading xx
